I thought this was a good machine until it failed the week after the warranty was up. It still runs but the button must be held down. Because I use a blender to make smoothies and almond milk, I decided to invest in a Vitamix. The power difference and blending capabilities is like night and day. I have always liked Breville but wish I had saved my money here and gone for the best right from the start. I would be money ahead. The Breville has a one year warranty, the Vitamix has seven years.

If you are deciding which blender you want to buy, and don't want to spend as much as a Vitamix costs but want a better value than your last blender that crapped out, this is your blender. It can make smoothies in the touch of a button and uses different speeds to immerse the ingredients together so you can walk away from it. No need to open the top and scrape the sides. You can grind coffee beans in it. I hear you can make almond butter with it, although I haven't tried that yet. I have made multiple smoothies in this blender - it is a great choice for that. I put in a frozen banana, apple, yogurt, almond milk and almonds, and it tastes great. If you like your smoothies very smooth and not chunky, you can always blend for more time on one of the different settings, such as puree or liquify. You won't find the red color of this blender in stores. I checked multiple websites for store availability and it seems stores only carry the silver color. Thank you Zappos for a wonderful purchase, prompt delivery and free shipping. Happy customer.

I have had mine for nearly one year. Oh my gosh! This convection oven is energy efficient, cooks food faster, and takes up no more room than your standard microwave oven. It is worth every penny and has has paid for itself many times over. My own standard oven gave out nearly two years ago. My husband was being a bit of a penny pincher and had me preparing soups and stew....anything that could be prepared on the stove top - the only part of the oven that still works. Then I found this oven and watched it for nearly a year to see if it would go on sale. Nodda! Finally, I bit the bullet and bought it. I haven't regretted my purchase. Yes, this oven has taken the the place of my full-size oven and sits on the counter top. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! It may be small but there is nothing small about the foods I am able to prepare.

Last year we moved into my sister's basement until our house was built. We decided to buy an oven to make some of our meals. This machine has been wonderful. No problems. It cooks everything beautifully! The part I love most is the fact we can make a full-size casserole in it. You have to purchase throw-away 9x13 pans because casserole dishes that size with handles do not fit. Big deal and worth the few pennies for throw-away pans, and the plus is no extra clean up. Very easy to clean. It comes with a cookie sheet, round pizza pan and another slotted cookie sheet. It is best to make sure and spray them with Pam before using otherwise it is a little tough to remove caked on food. We will continue to use this in our new home. I give it a 4 star in comfort due to the fact it gets very hot on the outside when in use and will cause a burn.

If I'd looked more closely, I would have seen the circle-in-a-circle and indentation -- which I'd rather have all flat. My bad. Also kind of flimsy; you'd better not plan on holding it by one hand -- fingertip grip.

This toaster is great; however, it stopped working for no apparent reason and apparently this is frequent after checking other reviews. Thanks to Zappos great customer service, they sent another out to me arriving in less than 24 hours from my call and I tossed the broken one. My daughter has had the same for 2 years and no issue...taking a chance with this, never taking a chance with Zappos!

Love this oven so much I have one and ordered one for my son. It is our primary oven now. We have a double oven in addition but this one uses so much less power! We can cook and toast everything! Best purchase ever! And of course Zappos has such a speedy delivery!

Spent some time researching blenders, this one is a great price and works like a champ. Bought two as my Daughter uses all the time. If you don't want to spend a ton of money and want a great blender this is the one!

I love this blender! I make a smoothie for breakfast every morning. Often times the ingredients are frozen so they need more muscle to blend. This blender has an outer blade and an inner blade that really get the job done. The outer blade covers a wide diameter that cheaper blenders don't have. I also like the auto settings and timers. While others boast of the smoothie button, my favorite button is the purée button. It is more powerful than the smoothie setting and makes smoothies extra smooth and creamy tasting. This was my first ever higher model blender, and I couldn't be more pleased.

Love this oven! I have used it for pizza, toasting, baking and more. Easy to use, food cooks evenly and thoroughly. So convenient! We also have a Breville juicer and mixer- very high quality brand.

I bought this Breville convection/toaster oven a little over a year ago. It is worth the extra price, because it is high quality and not chintzy like my previous toaster oven. I like it so much that I cook most of my oven meals in it, since it holds a true temperature and is perfect for making a meal for two (or one). And is much more energy efficient than my regular oven. In fact, I like this so much that I sent one to my son for his birthday. I hope he likes it as much as I do.

Fantastic blender. Truly one of the best blenders I've ever seen. It has a 'smoothie' button, which at first I thought was stupid - but it actually works. Dump everything into the blender, hit smoothie and it has a pre-programmed 60 second blender variation to mix, crush the ice and combine all ingredients. I would highly recommend this. I was considering the Vitamix, but am really glad I tried this one, because I haven't looked back and saved a lot.

I absolutely love my new Breville blender. It was money well-spent, no doubt. I knew that to do what I wanted to do, make smoothies and nut milks, crush ice and stuff like that, I was going to have to have a blender with some heavy-duty power. I had burned up a couple of blenders in the past, so that's just money down the drain. I had heard of Vita-Mix brand, that it is really good, so i started shopping there. OMG! They cost so much more than I imagined. So I kept looking. I have a Breville juicer and it's so great, so, knowing that, I had some confidence. My blender has enough power to do everything I want it to do. It is very well-made, cleans up super easy. I can set it to run and walk away too. Best of all, if it starts to get too hot (which it never has) it has an auto shut-off feature. I LOVE IT!! PS, dealing with Zappos has been a real pleasure too.

I love this blender! Never knew an appliance could give me so much joy. It is music to my ears. I live in a city and it was important to me to buy a blender that didn't make everyone around me hate me since I use it every morning. It doesn't wake up my roommates and so far it has made amazing smoothies and bean dips. Easy to clean. So glad I bought it. Well worth the price. I've had it for about two months. It does seem very sturdy but we shall see! My Cuisinart fell apart on me after two years of pretty consistent use, but the blade on the Breville is designed much better than my $60 Cuisinart.

My only regret is that I did not think to buy one of these years ago! Fantastic! I cook for one now, so this is great, but mostly I love it for roasting veg and meats. I live in FL and avoided turning on the big oven for several months of the year because it heats up the house too much. No more! I have had this for a couple weeks now and have used it about every day so far. It is pricey, but so worth it in my opinion, as I wanted to invest in something that would [hopefully!] last much longer and do a better job that the cheap toaster oven I once had. I also purchased the optional cutting board that fits on top and glad I did - the top of the oven itself does get quite hot, and of course I would end up touching it accidentally because I am a doofus like that.

Without any doubt, this is the best counter top oven available on the market. I have been using small ovens for decades now, and I am an avid cook. It is easier to clean, functions better,and uses less energy than my large oven. This price is exceptional and Zappos customer service is unsurpassed.

This blender is great and works well (Please read booklet before using). If you are looking at the high end blenders (Vita Mix), why spend a lot when this is half the price. I have read that people are having problems with lid and blender turns off then restarts (read this on You Tube), I don't find the lid difficult; yes, you have to make sure it is secure but lifting it off with the round tab is made easy also when it turns off and then comes back on, this is a safety feature and restricts wear on the motor so that it doesn't overheat. It is quiet, lightweight and easy to clean. Worth every penny. Also you can check out America's Test Kitchen on You Tube which was very helpful for me when making decision to buy a new blender. Puree function works beautiful. I had to have this feature as I am scheduled to have jaw surgery and need to puree my food for a couple of weeks. As always Zappos is great! Always speedy delivery and wonderful at accepting returns. I always shop with them.

This blender is as advertised. It crushes ice with no effort and cleans up quickly. I've made drinks, sauces, smoothies, you name it. It is worth the extra money.
